Investment for all

As a teacher working in Glasgow, it has been gratifying to note the rebuilding or remodelling of almost all the estate in the secondary school sector.

Regardless of how one feels about the private finance initiative, it has helped create a much more modern and appropriate environment in which our young people can learn.

However, you will note that I said "almost all" of the secondary sector has been rebuilt or greatly refurbished. This is because secondary provision in the special educational needs sector still ranges from barely adequate to poor. Surely, in these inclusive days, it's not asking for too much to expect major investment in this area?

It may well be that the city fathers (and mothers) are planning to remedy this situation. It would send out a powerful message that they value all equally if they did.
